For newly arrived refugees into Greensboro, language, transportation, isolation, lack of cultural brokers, and misunderstanding/lack of knowledge of American education and cultural activities present an ongoing concern. The objective of this project is to help newly arrived immigrants manage their transition and begin the process of cultural integration by learning English, providing job readiness skills for adults, and acting as a cultural broker.

Seinkiewicz is director of research at the Center for New North Carolinians and teaches adjunct courses in the Department of Public Health Education at UNCG.
